Dogwoof to handle pre-sales on Sour Grapes.

UK-based distributor Dogwoof has boarded pre-sales for Sour Grapes, currently in production, a documentary that tells the story of one of the greatest wine fraud cases in the US.

Directed by Jerry Rothwell, who previously made documentaries Deep Water and Town of Runners, the film unfolds as a heist thriller in the vintage wine market, following the rise and fall of wine fraudster Rudy Kurniawan.

The deal was brokered by Vesna Cudic, head of TV sales and acquisitions at Dogwoof with Met Film Production producer Al Morrow and Faites Un Voeu producer Catherine Simeon.

It marks the third third partnership between Dogwoof and Met Film Production following Town of Runners and Village at the End of the World.

Dogwoof came on board at the production stage after seeing an initial pitch at Sheffield Doc/Fest. Completion is set for late 2014.
